    Question 60lb

    A 60lb bow, if sighted in, how far could you shoot game accurately?

    As far as you can consistently put all arrows in a 6 inch circle.

    Depends how accurately you can shoot your bow with broadheads on the arrows.
    It takes time, patience and practice to set your bow up and become a good shot with it.

    Picture is of one of my groups at 60m with field points but I'd say 50m would be pushing it on a deer. (I'm still to get my first deer with the bow, despite taking quite a lot of smaller game with it)

    40m on game is getting out there with the bow but its all based on the situation. I limit myself to that.

    Targets are a different story.

    Two stuffed arrows.
    I have a couple of sets of those on my wall. First one was kind of cool. After that it's annoying and expensive.
